Subject: I was at this show, my first and last Mississippi show!
Only show I ever attended with almost zero audience, and the band played as if to a packed house, really filled the house with a living breathing sound. Amazing.
And when I say there was no audience I mean a small puddle of folks on the GA floor front & center. Empty.
I will hopefully always have this memory to cherish. I drove in from Memphis with a couple friends I was turning on to their first Dead concert. How crazy is it all?
Subject: A very underrated show
Excellent playing and Weir and Garcia have some really great rapport especially in the 2nd set. The long NFA is really inventive for that year. in particular i like the Lazy Lightning to end the first set.
Some '78 is not my favorite but this may be the best show from the southern run.
Subject: loving set 2
Subject: A sweet lullaby
This is a great show despite lack of keyboards!
Subject: Nearly Fell Off My Chair
Wish I was there. I was at plenty of good and great shows, and this would have made me a very happy person to attend!
Great job on the recording and I'll keep looking for pearls like this!

Subject: Sweet sounding AUDIENCE
Subject: INCREDIBLE Stella Blue -> NFA!
The highlight of the first set, for me, starts with a rocking "Minglewood" into a great "They Love Each Other". Slows down a bit with a less-than-spectacular "Me and My Uncle", but goes into a fantastic "Big River" capped off by a more than adequate "Loser".
Second set starts off good with a nice "Lightning > Supplication" and an acceptable "Scarlet / Fire". Hits a bit of a lull with "Promised Land" and "Stagger Lee" but that just may be my personal bias, as these two aren't exactly in my top favorite Dead songs. But it's all worth it when we get an awesome "Truckin'" with a nice Drums and jam.
The Other One > Stella Blue > NFA, with the last two respecively, are the Dead at their very best. Mind-blowing, and face-melting and all that other stuff. Amazing.
One of the best 78' shows out there both in both performance and recording quality. Some weak spots, but the high marks more than make up for it and this one gets 5-stars accordingly.
Subject: Hey Peteo!!
This show is fabulous, a definite contender for one of the best of the year.....and I say this as a long-time "1978 junkie"! I'm so glad they pulled this out of the hat in my beloved home state.....and, yeah, that transition from "Stella" into "NFA" IS mind-blowing!!
5 stars for performance and the killer AUD recording!!
Subject: Great Show!
Subject: Good Solid Show
Subject: Slow to Start but Timeless 2nd Set
Although the Half Step>Franklins is nice and mellow, a 4 star performance, the rest of the set is slow and Jerry in particular seems a little sick or out of it.
Scarlet > Fire is really sweet, pretty, and smooth. Truckin, Drums, Other One are all very solid, in forceful 78 style, and then there's the Stella > NFA....an UNFORGETTABLE moment! Really, extremely, tears-to-your-eyes beautiful transition. The encore of Casey Jones is also perfectly done. Get this show now!!
Subject: first of many, many
and perception changing to say the least.
if there is any doubt as to the sheer
joy these guys brought to us all, just
shut up for a second, and LISTEN!
all of this changed my way of thinking,
as well as opening up a whole beautiful and
enourmous well of possibilities, man..
after some 70 shows, it is still magic.
if the thunder don't get
you then the lightnin' will..
Subject: A VERY GOOD AUD FROM 1978
WELL WORTH THE DOWNLOAD
Subject: Ticket Stub, picture and flyer
Subject: good sound recording
Subject: Wow, it's fun checking out audience recordings
When the Dead Organization pulled DLs of the soundboards, I was furious. I was so mad, I thought about having the Stealie tattoo removed from my right bicep. But one day I was twiddling around with the archive.org options, and found this link to downloadable shows, almost all of which are audience recordings. One option allows you to rank the downloadable shows by rating, and, bam, did I come across a whole bunch of 1981 shows (why that year, I dunno...) that were 5-star audience recordings. I've DL'd a bunch of '81, plus a tasty 9-7-85 Red Rocks show, and a hilarious 7-31-71 show from Yale, where the damn audience CLAPS along with the Dead for three whole CDs! I never would have discovered those shows, or this nice one from Jackson, Mississippi, if I hadn't been "forced" to "go slumming" among the audience recordings. Yeah, a lot of them still suck, but if you take the time, jewels like this (and Barton Hall, Cornell University, 1981) will unveil themselves.
So, in retrospect, pulling the SBDs still was RUDE AS HELL, but I've found a whole new group of Dead shows to explore!
Try to find that positive side, eh?
